July 14, 2015            

 

The Simon Wiesenthal commends the California State Assembly for recently passing a resolution urging California campuses to condemn all forms of anti-Semitism. The State Senate passed the resolution in May.

“In the wake of virulent attacks on Jewish campus institutions - including swastika graffiti on a Jewish fraternity house – California’s highest officials and leaders have taken a vital public position on the odious nature of the ever growing and menacing anti-Semitism,” said Aron Hier, Director of the Wiesenthal Center’s Campus Outreach program.
